i want to congratulate katie for our leadership in working with our staffs and the industries and creating partnerships and the world of merchandising and all the different companies and working with me to promote those products. i came back from china you, you know, those bags are really wonderful in china will where did you make those not in china that were i get to introduce a huge market to locally manufactured products and when i see a label whether it's on books and wine or other things of manufacturing sincere makes and mattresses. sf made has worldwide attention
and that's our constitute you are so take advantage of this. i was going to get out of the way early i went to the game when we beat the lakers and we did that now 3 times in the last month and b.a. give this and same thing high and i look forward to working with you will have you when they come and innovate with us on the basketball court. i'm excited about all the companies i see here. i know that sf label means a lot when what is your u your looking at chocolates and wines or heat ceramics or mattresses a one hundred and 15 year company. i had a chance to visit with
them and the testimony bucks two assessors or cut lose deny i am sorry all kinds of things. we're going to do more. i know we've increased funding for our local manufacturing through sf made and we're going to a continue doing that. our business accelerators have been helpful but at the same time we've got more to do. i i know there are some great new programs. i love the fact that youth made just started we got introduced we're going to have a lot of youth and have interning to get into the skill sets needed to be part of the maker in the city. i also have i think an announcement maybe some of you know about it. but today, there are now 5
hundred sf made members, 5 hundred. congratulations (clapping) that is 25 percent more than last year are the at the same time. if we there 25 percentage every year once in a while, you'll be ahead of everybody that's a lot of great jobs. speaking will jobs i want you to know within 60 days our hardworking staff in addition to bringing i drinking a lot of beer are working on legislation. we're going to be working on our public works dr our legislation that will easy more affordable space to find that. that's incredible you've got to have that uneasy the regulatory
process. i know it's surely incredible. we also want to let you know we're announcing new innovates. we will do more expansion we did that with sf when we brought fashion here and local manufacturing but we're doing it with our food conspiracy and eating locally is great but listen up the different things that have to do with food. we have a fantastic produce in the city that doubles fresh vegetation and food to every food establishment as well as grocery stores throughout northern california. to connect them to more of our local scene and make sure that
big event are utilized with our local produce that's the heart and movement of our whole food sector innovative. and then as wife also felt the success of our city has partly to do with everybody we do whether it's bio life scientists and the technology industry or merchandising industry here and tourism but the real innovation comes when we recognize that it is the intersections where those industries happen to cross and where they met each other. that's why it's important to see a company like autodesk here and pg&e that ordinarily they do things in the traditional sense
people do things on their own. advanced merchandising you can't do anything without this you want to be able to see it before you mass produce it it takes outside the risk and certainly saves money. david chiu and i were there at the autodesk were assisting all the different levels of merchandising. so that cross section is very important. there's more of those areas that can do a lot more for us. you'll find another example when square opens up their headquarters you'll find their furniture is being produced in sf made like ohio designed willing designing it to make sure we utilize the talent that's here poor more of that
can happen. why can't we have 50 to 60 people holding a tip buck too bag. there's all kinds of things and that's the beauty of being in san francisco we can introduce and reintroduce each other to each other. you're going to find a lot of builders doing haven't designs. i've seen that with can do. there's all kinds of things. this is the marvel i know we're going to success base this is the best city in the world. thank you very much and congratulations
in san francisco after an earthquake. we are very pleased to have with us today, pat brown from the department of animal care and control and her friend oreo. >> hi. >> lauren. >> could you tell us what it would take after an earthquake or some other emergency when you are in your home and maybe no power or water for a little while. what it would take for you and oreo to be comfortable and safe at home. >> just as you would prepare for your own needs should an earthquake or a disaster event occur, you need to prepare for your pets. and i have brought with me today, some of the things that i have put in my disaster kit to prepare for my animal's needs to make sure that i am ready should something happen and i need to shelter at home. >> what are some of the things that people should have in their home after an earthquake or other emergency to help take care of their tasks and take care of themselves. >> i took the liberty of
bringing you some examples. it includes a first aid kit for your pet and you can also use it for yourself and extra meds for your pets. and water container that will not tip over. we have got both food, wet food and dry food for your pet. and disposable food container. and water, and your vet records. in addition, we have a collar and some toys. >> yeah. to keep oreo busy. >> he needs toys and this is san francisco being a fruity city and come on oreo. this is your dinner, it is patte style chicken dinner with our foody seen here. >> what they say now is that you should have at least a gallon of water and i think that a gallon of water is small
amount, i think that maybe more like two gallons of water would be good for you and your pet. >> does the city of animal control or any other agency help you with your pet after an emergency. >> there is a coalition of ngos, non-governmental organizations led by the department of animal care and control to do disaster planning for pets and that includes the san francisco spca. the paws group, the vet sos, pets unlimited. and we all have gotten together and have been getting together for over four or five years now to talk about how we can educate the public about being prepared for a disaster as it involves your pets. >> a lot of services. i understand that if you have to leave your home, we are encouraging people to take their pets with them. >> absolutely. we think that that is a lesson that we concerned from karina,
if you are being evacuated you should take your pet with you. i have a carrier, and you need to have a carrier that you can fit your pet in comfortably and you need to take your pet with you when you were evacuated. >> i am going to thank you very much for joining us and bringing oreo today. and i am go i'm nicole and lindsey, i like the fresh air. when we sign up, it's always so gratifying. we want to be here. so i'm very excite ied to be here today. >> your volunteerism is appreciated most definitely.
>> last year we were able to do 6,000 hours volunteering. without that we can't survive. volunteering is really important because we can't do this. it's important to understand and a concept of learning how to take care of this park. we have almost a 160 acres in the district 10 area. >> it's fun to come out here. >> we have a park. it's better to take some of the stuff off the fences so people can look at the park.
>> the street, every time, our friends. >> i think everybody should give back. we are very fortunate. we are successful with the company and it's time to give back. it's a great place for us. the weather is nice. no rain. beautiful san francisco. >> it's a great way to be able to have fun and give back and walk away with a great feeling. for more opportunities we have volunteering every single day of the week. get in touch with the parks and recreation center so come at 62942 working with
together we can support your children. it's been my dream to start is a valley school since i was a little girl. i'm having a lot of fun with it (clapping) the biggest thing we really want the kids to have fun. a lot of times parents say that valley schools have a lot of problems but we want them to follow directions but we want them to have a wonderful time and be an affordable time so the kids will go to school here.
we hold the classes to no longer 12 and there's 23 teachers. i go around and i watch each class and there's certain children i watched from babies and it's exciting to see them after today. the children learn how to follow directions and it ends up helping them in their regular schooling. they get self-confidents and today, we had a residual and a lot of time go on stage and i hope they get the bug and want to dance for the rest of their
>> i tried to think about this room as the dream room, where we dream and bring some of those dreams to life. i feel very blessed that i have been able to spend the last 31 years of my life doing it my way, thinking about things better interesting to me, and then pursuing them. there are a lot of different artists that come here to work, mostly doing aerial work. kindred spirits, so to speak. there is a circus company that i have been fortunate enough to work with the last couple of years. i use elements of dance and choreography and combine that with theater techniques. a lot of the work is content- based, has a strong narrative.
the dancers have more of a theatrical feel. i think we are best known for our specific work. in the last 15 years, spending a lot of time focusing on issues that affect us and are related to the african-american experience, here in the united states. i had heard of marcus shelby and had been in join his work but never had the opportunity to meet him. we were brought together by the equal justice society specifically for this project. we were charged with beginning work. marquez and i spent a lot of time addressing our own position on the death penalty, our experiences with people who
had been incarcerated, family members, friends of friends. pulling our information. beyond that, we did our own research. to create a picture that resonated with humanity. it is the shape of a house. in this context, it is also small and acts like a cell. i thought that was an interesting play on how these people make these adjustments, half to create home. what is home for these people? the home is their cell. people talk a lot about noise -- very noisy in prisons. that is interesting to me. looking at the communication
level, the rise of frustration of being caged, wondering, where does redemption fit into the equation here? [singing] i think both of us really believe the death penalty is wrong, and is flawed for many reasons. the list is as long as my arm -- about several others. we feel this is important for both of us, personally, to participate in the debate of this issue in a way that we can
help people frame it for a conversation. >> hello, hello. let's gather now and start the mayor's hear all about dignitaries like you. what a beautiful sunny day i'm president of the board of supervisors of the chinatown community development center and welcome to this wonderful opening of that magnificently project. marilyn fighter fiery firebrand that was mary helen rogers.
